Nutrition program, meal hours and more


School Breakfast is FREE to all and is served from 7:55 to 8:15 a.m. Student Lunch cost is $2.55 which includes milk, fruit, vegetable, meat or meat alternate, and bread. 

Prepaid Lunch Accounts—Families can prepay their student’s lunch account by bringing in a check or cash to the lunchroom coordinator or you may enroll online.

NEW The online payment system is now School Café. MPS is no longer using PayPams.

Free/Reduced Lunches may be available. The Nutrition Center for Minne- apolis Public Schools sends out applications at the beginning of August. We ask that all families return Free and Reduced lunch forms. They can be returned to the Nutrition Center in the self-addressed stamped envelope they provide. This information is used by the state and school district to determine part of our funding. Many families qualify for free or reduced lunches. Some parents/guardians will already have received a letter from Hennepin County for their child to receive free or reduced cost meals. 

Open Campus—Eligible students may go outside at lunch. Ninth grade students are blocked from leaving at lunch during their 1st quarter at South but will be eligible if they meet the criteria set in the student handbook.
